I love mornings in downtown Austin.
That is all.
This year we dressed Molly up as the most disgusting, offensive, hated, malicious, detestable thing in the world. After all, not only is Halloween for scary, horrible things but it’s also the one day where it’s ok to dress your dog up.
Without further ado, I present her to you in all her horrible cuteness:
MONDAY: Beef Roast with Roasted Potatoes and Sauteed Spinach (Leftover from last week and the last non-Cooper meat we’ll be eating for the next year. We opted for Breakfast for Dinner last night instead. Mmmm….pancakes.)
TUESDAY: Burgers, Sweet Potato Fries, Broccoli Salad and Sopapilla Cheesecake (Small Group)
WEDNESDAY: Pizza/Leftovers (CORE)
THURSDAY: Fiery Fish Tacos with Crunchy Corn Salsa and Black Beans
FRIDAY: Evan Out
SATURDAY: Evan Out
SUNDAY: Southwest Chili with Cornbread
This weekend Evan and Chris are heading up to Childress to pick up Cooper.
No, not my deceased childhood pet. (A Yorkie named Cooper)
Our engineered-and-bred-to-be-extra-delicious cow. Yum.
The boys are picking him up at the butcher in Childress and bringing him back to Austin and Houston, to be divided up amongst everyone who bought in on the grass-fed cow raised by Chris’s family in Childress. We ordered a half side, so we’re soon going to be overloaded with meat, hopefully enough to last a good portion of the year. What it really means though, is that I need to clean out our freezer. Stat.
Today i took inventory of our freezer’s contents and now I’m planning meals based on what I found.
Here are the contents:
Really, I think it could be worse.
I can throw away: the scallops, fryer chicken, cooked shrimp and sugar snap peas and peas (they had freezer burn).
I can move: the ice cream maker bowl, the mugs, and the coffee.
Then I can roll the rest of it into my meal planning for the week:
Monday- Mexican Chicken Corn Chowder and Spicy Roasted Chicken
Tuesday- Dinner with Papa Pro
Wednesday- Totino’s, Cake and Ice Cream (CORE)
Thursday- Chicken Fried Steak, Mashed Potatoes, Corn, Green Beans, Rolls and Peach Pie
Friday- Beef Roast with Potatoes and Pearl Onions and Sauteed Spinach
Saturday- Gypsy Picnic
Sunday- Sausage with Spicy Mustard and Grilled Artichokes and Spanakopitas
So kind of a random week, but a random week celebrating Cooper. Next week expect some beef on the menu. 🙂
